Sunrise on the Top of Mount Fuji

An unforgettable experience

By Nicole Bauer, August 2012

Watching the sunrise from the top of Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain, is an unforgettable experience—incomparable to any other sunrise I have ever seen. The views are magnificent and the light is magic; plus, it's different every time, depending on general weather conditions, especially the clouds. This is the second time I climbed Mount Fuji, and my camera traveled with me this time!

Dear Reyzi, the mountain trail is only open during July and August, maybe the first weeks in September. For the rest of the year there usually remains a lot of snow on the top and it is not safe to climb. Sorry!
